Ana Tijoux US Debut
Adding to the roster of “French Musicians We Love”, here’s something for all the hip hop fans. French/Chilean MC Ana Tijoux makes her US debut with 1977. Although 1977 just became available on iTunes last Tuesday, don’t mistake Ana for a newbie. She’s been making music since the mid 90s with a number of main stream successes in Latin America.
1977 is a faithful homage to 90s hip hop with its minimal beats, solid production and downtempo vibe. The twist that makes it interesting is that she MC’s in Spanish with a sultry and sexy understated confidence that seamlessly flows with scratches, strings, jazzy horns and Latin nuances. The final product is both totally fresh and comfortably familiar at the same time.
